I remember experimenting when I was a kid with crayon bits. I used one of
those Creepy Crawler ovens you can buy in Toys R Us and they melted just
fine. I poured the mixture into their metal molds (make sure you put in a
hook to pull it out when dry) and after cooling it in cold water, I pulled
them out by the metal hook I put in.
